Livestock County Fair Management Clinics Scheduled

By Lexie Hayes

The biennial Livestock County Fair Management Clinics have been scheduled for 2018. The western Kansas session will be held on Tuesday, April 10, 2018 at the Gray County Fairgrounds in Cimarron. The eastern Kansas clinic will be held on Thursday, April 12, 2018 at the Jackson County Fairgrounds in Holton. This is an opportunity for county agents and fair board members to learn and discuss issues regarding livestock activities at county fairs. Tentative topics that will be discussed are county fair board structure and management, fair insurance, poultry health and exhibit management, 4-H livestock policies and extension's role at county fairs, and the timing of livestock shows during the county fair.

Pre-registration will be required, and full registration details will be released by the first of the year. Mark your calendar and encourage your fair board members to plan to attend!
